School Library Month 2022

Every April, librarians around the country celebrate School Library Month. School Library Month honors school libraries and librarians and the essential role they play in schools and the learning process. Throughout the month, school librarians promote and host activities that help patrons make connections to learning and the world around them.

It was first celebrated in 1985 and is sponsored by the American Association of School Librarians (AASL), a division of the American Library Association. The theme of the first national observance was “Where Learning Never Ends: The School Library Media Center.”

If you aren’t a school librarian, take a moment in April to thank a school librarian! If you are a school librarian, take a look at the School Library Month webpage from ALA ( for free printables, downloads, activities, proclamations, and PSA videos.
